We did the spearhead on Feb 6-8, conditions were a little softer than they are now, but the whistler area had just had a big wind event prior (and during!) our traverse. We bivied in a snowcave on the tremor glacier on N.1. We made it to the hut the next night. The route seems to allow the skiier to avoid the nastiest of avalanch terrain. One couloir below decker is a little interesting though, and the worst part for us was skinning up a slope from fitzsimmons up and over to the overlord. It was getting really wind loaded. Should be bomber now. The stretch from the platform to the McBeth descent will be chattery. Have fun. It looks cold up there.
